Biz Lesson: Instilling Respect, Loyalty, Allegience and Dedication (Video)
You’ve completed a project for a customer or client. They were wonderfully pleased. You were showered with praise and accolades. There was a feeling of mutual satisfaction: you for a job well-done, they for a great product or service.
There was a bond created. An alliance. An affiliation. A union. It wasn’t just business, it was personal…
But that was in the past. Yes, clients come and go. You’ve moved on, as have they. Perhaps it’s been six months? Two years? Maybe even ten? Time flies and, unfortunately, even the strongest connections can be lost sometimes…
As your valued and valuable past clients you should ask yourself…Is it worth getting in touch with them? Sending a friendly email? Asking how they are? Wishing them well? Inquiring if they, or anyone else they know, requires any further assistance?
As you watch the following awe-inspiring, incredible video (perhaps you have seen it before?) think of things in a business sense.
Think of the two gentlemen you see as businesspeople and the lion as a former customer or client. Use your imagination for this one.
Think about people that you have given your professional heart and soul to. Think of people whose respect and admiration you have earned! Think of that bond that surpassed business and became personal…
…do you think they’ve forgotten you?
Maybe they have. But chances are they haven’t. Maybe they need your assistance again. Perhaps they have a referral for you. Maybe it’s just the kind of connection which will keep the door open for future opportunity.
